Theres the onslaught of seasonal changes in temperature, humidity, sunlight, airborne chemicals, spores, pollens, particles, and pollutants - all of which smack us in the face. No wonder our skin breaks out in protest from time to time.
The exact cause of eczema is unknown. It seems to be a combination of dry, irritable skin, an abnormal immune response, and a tendency to run in families that together constitute conditions favorable for eczema.
Eczema can be a very disconcerting and irritating skin issue to deal with. Though it's quite common, the way that it appears on sufferers varies. Some people suffer from very slight appearances of the dry, itchy darkened skin patches, while some have it on their hands, feet, elbows and back of their necks in visible, large quantities. While it's a skin condition that is seen in many different types of people, its impetus is pretty widely questioned.
